Olivetti Olivetti Programma 101 Electronic Calculator Introduction Article
Computers & Automation, December, 1965

This announcement article from the December, 1965 New Products section of the periodical Computers & Automation gives a clue about the production lead time for this publication, since the Programma 101 was actually introduced in October. It is surprising that so little is said about the machine, especially given that it was rather revolutionary in the electronic calculator field, with features that wouldn't be matched until the 1968 introduction of the Hewlett Packard 9100 calculator.
